    Default Best skate shoes for under $65?

    Hey guys, tell me, what are the best skate shoes you have skated (under 65 U.S. dollars) and why?

    This has worked for me many times, because the people before me weren't skaters, so they aren't worn the same.

    Go check out a local shop, they might have a sales section for shoes.

    BOOM!..... What he said. A lot of skate shops usually have a clearance shoe rack that have shoes usually for under 50$ If you're lucky, you'll find something in your size. And on top of that you support your local skate shop. If you aren't able to hit up a skate shop in person, check out the sale/clearance deals from some online stores. There really isn't a go to shoe brand if you have under $65 to spend though. It all comes down to it being preferences. Some people like these brands, some like those.

    Chucks. 40 bucks and they last longer than vans.

    Yeah, but I'm just wondering what your favorite brand/model of shoes are your favorite so far.

    Converse get that famous rip on the side though... But good thought. Vans Authentics aren't the best but Vans Half Cab are pretty good.

    Love the look of the Manchester and the idea that it contours to your feet.

    I'm digging on the Vans Hosoi Sk8 Hi's. But those are $70 plus tax.

    $75 atm but itll eventually go on sale, the nyjah s. My favorite shoe. Comfort is unmatched, super suede is durable and it has the looks. I think its frame is perfect for skating, that board feel is amazing .

    I haven't looked in to Vans Pro shoes. What do they do that's different from other shoes?

    They look awesome! I'm more in to the low top stuff cause the hi tops aren't very good for my balance. I like to let my ankles move. But I definitely would at least try those.
